THEY broke records at G’s Hainey Farm at Barway outside Ely on Sunday when an impressive 3,100 visitors flocked to the annual open day.
It was the seventh year G’s has taken part at the farm which has been owned and run by the Shropshire family for three generations.
In fact the attendance was so huge the farm stayed open an extra hour to cope with the numbers attending.
Open Farm Sunday is a nationwide initiative run by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) and offers the chance for young and old to meet the farmers who grow their food and care for the countryside.
Tractors took visitors out to see crops being harvested while back ‘at base’ demonstrations and videos showed how farming in the 21st century works.
Hugely popular was the farmers’ market which featured Corkers Crisps, the Cambridge Cheese Company, Cobs Bakery, Ely Gin and La Hogue.
